Angel's Comment:

The key fragrance note: fruity of tangerine peel; the compound note is the sweet jujube and aged scent of white tea. Mellow, sweet and refreshing.

This tea has a unique shape, like a piece of chocolate. Each cake weights 30g, which can be divided into 6 small pieces, each piece is 5g, very convenient to brew and carry. The raw materials are Shoumei white tea and Xinhui tangerine peel from 2016, and are mixed by professional blenders according to the taste. The aromas of tangerine peel and white tea complement each other, and the taste is sweet and soft.

 

There are also various brewing methods: we can brew in gongfu way with a Gaiwan or teapot, or western style with a cup or a kettle, or we also can brew it in a thermos cup while traveling. If you like the flavor of aged white tea, we recommend to boil it, which brings more white tea taste.

Tea Garden

Chaitou Shan Tea Garden is located in Fuding, which is known as the hometown of white tea. The plantation is almost always blanketed with fog, providing the perfect conditions for the tea bushes to accumulate a wide variety of microminerals and nutrients. The soil here is rich red and yellow in color, signifying an abundance of important organic material. The tea species mainly grown here is the Fuding Dabaihao variety.

Tea Farmer

As we all know, the world’s white tea is in China, and Chinese white tea is in Fuding. Mr. Chen was born in Fuding, Fujian Province. He has been influenced by tea since he was a child. It seems that he came with the mission of inheriting white tea culture from the moment he was born. He has been engaged in tea cultivation and production for more than 30 years, and has always adhered to the principle of "quality first" for many years. He is not only a successful tea industry operator, but also an excellent inheritor of white tea culture, allowing more people to taste and understand Fuding white tea.

Tea Bush

This cake is made of the leaves of the Fuding Dabaihao plant, called Dahao for short. It is a small tree that propagates asexually.

Fuding Da Hao Tea Tree

In 1985, Dahao was certified as a national variety of tea plant. It grows up to 2.8m tall with a thick trunk. The tea from the spring leaves of the bush contains 1.8% amino acids and 28.2% tea polyphenols, which marks it as a high-quality base for making white tea in particular.

History

Tea has been grown in Fujian for centuries as an ever-important staple of commerce and trade throughout ancient China. Originally, the process of drying the leaves was followed by a variation of hot-air drying and sun-drying, a meticulous step intended to remove excess water from the leaves to ease the preservation process and preserve the tea for sale. The leaves of tea dried in this way were often compared to the eyebrows of Shouxing, the longest-living man in mythology. It is from this myth that Shou Mei earned its name, from the Chinese for “long curved eyebrow”, 眉毛, or ‘meimao’.
